Political Flip-Flops

Editor:

Here is a ‘Top 10' list of political flip-flopping --With all of the rhetoric flying about, it's amazing that the press hasn't kept track of the flip-flops on issues that George W Bush has made since he was became president.

10. Bush was against a 9/11 commission; now he's for it.

9. Bush was against an Iraq WMD investigation; now he's for it.

8. Bush was against nation building; now he's for it.

7. Bush first said the "mission accomplished" Iraqi banner was put up by the sailors; he later admitted it was done by his advance team.

6. Bush was against a Homeland Security Department; now he's for it.

5. Bush was against campaign finance reform; now he's for it.

4. Bush was against deficits; now he's for them.

3. Bush was for free trade; then he was for tariffs on steel, and now he's against them again.

2. Bush and his administration officials said that the Geneva Conventions don't apply to "enemy combatants." Now they claim they do.

And, now for number one...

1. On Sept. 13, 2001, Bush said, "The most important thing is for us to find Osama Bin Laden. It is our number one priority and we will not rest until we find him."

On March 13, 2002, Bush said, "I don't know where he is. I have no idea, and I really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority."

So, when you hear all this negative political rhetoric about flip-flopping on the issues, remember that it's just the pot calling the kettle black.
